Jesus loves you.So proclaimed a bumper sticker on the car in front of me. (And I’ve edited the fine print.)
Everyone else thinks you’re a jerk.
The “Jesus loves you” part was in large print, luring the eye to the punch line.
The implication was that Jesus, perhaps like your mother, has to love you. It’s in the job description. And perhaps He and Mom aren’t very bright or objective.
Still, it got me thinking.
He does love me, I know that. (So does my mom.)
Then, so what if everyone else (some days me included) thinks poorly of me?
Whose opinion matters most?
Jesus loves me, this I know. And in that knowledge will I rest.
